Summer Wedding in Stockholm
Being able to use my camera and photograph new places and spaces is one of the biggest joys in this profession. Every time I visit a new place, I find these subtle little beauties, and I wish I had my camera on hand. I normally settle for an iPhone shot and post it up on Instagram with a chic filter and call it good. But when I get to travel for a wedding, camera in hand, it’s one of the most rewarding times in my job. This Stockholm wedding is no different.
The day was filled with so many sweet little traditions and details. Alexis and Magnus clearly spent so much time refining it all and creating a day that truly reflected who they are and their love as a couple.
Alexis is my cousin, and back in 2013, my husband and I went on the most epic road trip for 4 months during the summer. The last stop on our itinerary, before heading back to the UK, was Stockholm to visit these two. Right before we arrived Magnus proposed to Alexis and I did their engagement photos for them. I was so excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding day, as Stockholm is such an amazing city.
They were married at Villa Källhagen, a stunning location, just a quick stroll from the city centre. The setting is right on the water, and you would never guess that you were almost central in a big city. The gardens surrounding the hotel made the perfect setting for some natural shots, and the interior of the hotel was detailed and chic.
Shortly after this Stockholm wedding, I realised that my destination wedding portfolio is quite substantial. I love traveling and if I can do it and document a wedding day at the same time then I’m doubly thrilled. If you’re planning a wedding outside of the UK, get in touch with me. If you give me the chance to capture your day I will work my ass off and deliver gorgeous photos for you.
